Lol, I'll be interested to see how much you can restrain youtself in the coming weeks. I'm going to refrain from any political discussion right now, other to say I'm also having a wank along with Matt Drudge :-) I'm pretty amazed at the difference one debate has had (poll-wise, at least). Too many people wait until the debates to decide who they like better. The debates are a game to me, and I can't imagine them ever having an impact on my vote, but it was enjoyable to see Obama struggle in the first one.

There was one poll that showed Romney up by 5 (Pew) and one poll that showed Obama up by 5 (Gallup) so I'm not really sure the polls really mean anything. The fact that those polls are often only samples of about 1,000 people doesn't help their validity either.

As far as too many people waiting until the debates to decide...research has shown that isn't true. There have been a bunch of studies that show people hear what they want to hear from the candidate they aleady support when they watch debates. There are still others that show that debates, despite the hype they get from the media, rarely have a huge influence on voting unless there is a major, major gaffe.

In reality the President and Mr. Romney are fighting for about + or - 5% of the vote right now. The rest of the country is already decided.

There was really only one poll that got everyone so excited. Romney will find another way to doom his campaign. Wank while you can.
